My Favorite Historical Romance Side Characters

1. LADY DANBURY! from Julia Quinn, multiple series I don’t think you understand how awesome Lady Danbury is. I’m tempted to leave her as my only favorite side character because she’s that awesome. Lady Danbury uses her age and station to frighten the majority of the ton and it’s SO. MUCH. FUN. to watch her in action. […]

My Favorite Moments in Historical Romance

This was more difficult than I anticipated. There aren’t a lot of them. They’re all Julia Quinn. I’m not sorry for it. Honestly, some of the best parts of historical romance involve the characters getting their HEA… and that’s too spoilery for me. So you get these instead! 1. Bridgerton antics from the Bridgerton series by Julia […]

There’s a definite pattern in my favorite histrom heroines, but I shan’t apologize for it. 1. Penelope Featherington from Romancing […]

My Favorite Historical Romance Heroes

Posted 13 April, 2015 by Amanda / 8 Comments

Oh, heroes. Without them, we’d be missing half of what makes historical romances so fun. (The peen and the sex. No wait. Our heroes are more than a way for our heroines to get their rocks off.) What makes a good hero? The question, for me, is all about fine lines. A good hero is assertive […]

These best of the best. The books my “does not reread” self could reread (and in some cases, already has) forever. Though the list is not in any particular order. For the sake of simplicity, I’m reposting from reviews. Also, I’m lazy. 1. Romancing Mister Bridgerton by Julia Quinn from my review: So many of you […]
